Social Capital Report

There is an invisible economy in communities where millions of dollars in goods and services are exchanged through generosity and mutual investment. Society needs to recognize and match the effort families are making through social capital.

The monthly journals families submit to FII cover a wide range of data points, including social capital exchanges like watching one another’s children, cooking for each other, etc. While these exchanges are not monetized, they have real economic value. We estimate that value by not only asking FII members to catalog the social capital they have given and received over the course of the month, but what the dollar value of those exchanges would be had they been monetized.
